Kiss of the Rabbit God (兔兒神)

Kiss of the Rabbit God (兔兒神)

A Chinese-American restaurant worker falls in love with an 18th century Qing dynasty god who visits him at night and leads him on a journey of sexual awakening and self-discovery.

Trapped in the grind of working full time at a Chinese restaurant, a young repressed boy named Matt encounters a mysterious, seductive visitor with crimson hair. When nightly visits from this red-haired figure blossom into a tryst, Matt struggles to surrender himself to romantic intimacy. Challenged by the mysterious visitor who reveals himself to be an ancient deity, The Rabbit God, Matt must release himself from self - imprisonment and embark on a journey of sexual awakening and discovery. Interweaving personal family history in the Chinese restaurant business with the richness of Chinese mythology, "Kiss of the Rabbit God" is a confession and a love letter to the queer Asian - American community and tells the story of a lover's quest for self-possession to own one's desire and unlock sexual intimacy through spiritual embodiment.
